Vinyl Club Album of the Month

Welcome to the Gimme Metal Vinyl Club!  Our February release will feature the re-issue of High on Fire's Double LP, The Art of Self Defense along with a limited edition High on Fire enamel pin.

Released and remastered by Southern Lord, Gimme is proud to re-issue the debut album of High on Fire -  The Art of Self Defense.   Formed by Sleep guitarist Matt Pike and Berthed out of the need to simply play guitar again, Pike jammed with and settled on a line-up of powerhouse drummer Des Kensel and longtime guitarist friend George Rice, who made the switch to bass to round out the trio. The band recorded their debut with Sleep engineer/producer Billy Anderson at Shark Bite Studios in Oakland, CA. The Art of Self Defense served up a rock hard, unorthodox form of modern metal cloaked in strange religious theology and the trio's style was unique, distinct, HEAVY as all f*** and absolutely crushing. The album immediately became a cult classic and not even the closure of the label that released the album (Mans' Ruin) could stop the powerhouse that had been unleashed

As a metal community, we owe a great deal to Possessed for realizing their vision as extreme metal pioneers some 35 years ago. Seven Churches was a groundbreaking gem in 1985 and a mandatory album for any death metal aficionado today. I dare you not to get that riff in The Exorcist stuck in your head! All hail Possessed!
